A successful day of junior events has come to an end in Tanzania and we wish to congratulate the various winners.

The Under 8 section was won by Ansh Sareen and Niya Vinay who both ended with 5/6. The Under 10 section was similarly shared on the same 5/6 score between Nishit Sai and Chauhan Adi.

Both the Under 12 and U18 sections saw perfect 6/6 scores recorded however. Aditya Bhattbhatt emerged victorious in the U12 section and Cleophas Charles did the same in the U18's.

At the time of writing the key match between IM Elijah Emojong and Githinji Hinga is still ongoing and remains a tight contest. The open event will be decided tomorrow with the final round scheduled to commence at 15.30pm local time on Sunday afternoon.
